“Clean, nice pool and excellent staff!”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

Room was very clean every day. Housekeeping worked well. Staff were very nice and helpfull. Breakfast was ok, it was almost same things every day. Room was big and balcony to the pool also. Pool area and pool bar were the best things in this hotel! We really like them. Wifi (quite slow) was free in the lobby but if you pay 200bht you can get wifi to the room (to whole stay). I think it is better to eat in somewhere else than their restaurant, we ate two times it was average. But their cheap buffet (299bht/person) we didnt try, so maybe it would be better! Location was not very good, it seemed better in map. It was still easy to go Ao Nang beach (better one) and to the mainstreet by tuktuk, it was only 40bht/2 persons. You can also borrow dvd movies from reception of you have a laptop with you (in better rooms there are player).

Room Tip: Take a balcony to the pool!

Thai's are well known for their friendliness and unfortunately I didn't feel this when we stayed at the Red Ginger Chic Resort over the New Year period.

The check-in was bordering on cold and we were shown to our loft room on the 4th level.

The room could have been designed or furnished so much better than what it was. This room is split up on 2 levels, the bedroom on the loft level and the living area and bathroom on the lower level. The staircase leading to the bedroom is extremely steep and narrow, almost dangerous. I could barely get our suitcases up. The furniture isn't well kept and I found the bed to be quite firm, slightly softer than a brick. The loft did have a flat screen TV with a good selection of satellite channels. The cupboard space upstairs is minimal and it's not ideal venturing down to the bathroom should you require the toilet. Downstairs also had a flat screen TV, a bar fridge and a firm daybed and there was a balcony that had a fantastic view over the pool and we could also see the ocean. The bathroom was small and not enough room for the basin, that was located just outside the bathroom in the living area. It would be more practical to move the daybed upstairs and the main bed downstairs. We paid for WiFi access in our room and the connection was limited and the dropouts became increasingly frustrating. You are better off using the lobby free WiFi.

I recall trying to get an iron and ironing board but was unsuccessful and after speaking to a few staff members was told that another guest had it and I should try again tomorrow. Thanks so much for your help, lucky I wasn't attending a wedding!!!

The facilities - a pool which had perfect water temperature and a pool bar. I found it hard to believe that the pool bar closed at 5pm. In my experience between 4-6pm is one of the most busiest times for pool bars so there lost opportunities for everyone. Happy hour is from 3-4pm, a little early for my liking, with 2 for one drinks. Initially the staff at the pool bar had the "I don't want to be working here attitude". I felt we won them over in the end and they came out of the shell a little more. There's not enough sun loungers to satisfy demand, so handy hint.... get one early!!!! There was also a gym that I didn't frequent.

I found the food undesirable and the morning buffet breakfast average at best. There was an egg station but apart from that the selection of foods was quite limited.

Check out was standard and in the end I was happy to leave and move on.

Overall this place is a potential gold mine. The location is great and the room rates, especially for peak season, are surprisingly cheap. With some slight changes this place could actually be an amazing boutique hotel but as it stands at the moment and based on my experience it doesn't deserve a 4 star status, especially not in the service department.

If I was to rate this place out of 10 it would be a 4. Losing 3 points alone for it's service, or lack of.

Room Tip: The Loft Rooms are overrated.

This is a pretty hotel located on a quiet but self-sufficient street (Moo 3 Aonang Soi 8). This street has everything which makes staying at Red Ginger really convenient. Besides Red Ginger, there are also other chic-looking hotels along the same street. Mercure is also on the same street but is too far in, so it’s not recommended. In terms of creature comforts, there are restaurants serving Thai and Western cuisine, tour desks, a bar, mini-marts, spas, and Thai massage places. Right opposite Red Ginger is an ATM which accepts PLUS and Cirrus ATM cards. What else can you ask for?

Red Ginger is situated between 2 beaches. Walk out from Moo 3 to the main road (Nopparat Thara Road), if you turn left, you come to Ao Nang beach and where the shops/ madness are. Turn right, you come to the quieter Nopparat Thara Beach. To walk from Moo 3 to Ao Nang beach takes 5 mins if you walk fast like me; 10 mins if you stroll. To walk from Moo 3 to Nopparat Thara Beach takes 3 mins. Either way you turn, you immediately see more resorts, restaurants, “Tourist Information” signs which are not official tourist bureaus but rather commercial places where you can book tours.

CONCLUSIONS:

The location beween 2 beaches and on a quiet street is great. The staff is very pleasent and a few things that we were not so happy with was corrected swiftly after our giving notice. The restaurant provided us with an exellent breakfast every morning. The pool-area is absolutely gordius. The only thing is that the clening of the room could have been a little bit better (quite dustry)- We stayed for 2 weeks.

I would not give the hotel stay a very good rating, but it wasnt bad either, Hence my rating would be 3.5star. Stayed for 3 nights and definitely had an enjoyable stay.
Location-The location is not on the mainstreet, which was preferable because its much more quiet. definitely walkable to the main street in Aonang where there are many restaurants, hawkers and street shop. Just diagonally acros the hotel, you could just order a cab to anywhere you want to go.
Service - staff were polite, friendly, helpful and prompt. Definitely commendable!
The restaurant - we had daily breakfast, a lunch and a dinner at the restaurant. The breakfast spread was good but could be better although they do have variation of food serve every morning. The lunch and dinner menu was mediocre. We were dissapointed that they do not serve any local thai desert.
The room - we had the room with the pool access. It was spacious and the room was clean. The are a few low points during the stay. The staff did not replenish the shampoo and shower gel daily. We also realized that the resort seems to be a breeding ground for mosquitos. The moment we open the door to the corridor and pool, we can see numerous mosquitos flying into the room. We had mosquitos bites. You''ll need to ask the staff to prepare mosquito repellant for you. You may want to bring your own insect repellant too!
